Starting with weight loss is as simple as visiting Core Primary Care for a detailed health consultation. The team performs a physical examination and discusses your medical history with you in detail. During this portion of the visit, you should offer any information that may be relevant, including dietary restrictions and exercise habits.
Your initial exam might also include some lab tests to measure your blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol. The team weighs you and calculates your body mass index (BMI) according to your height and weight. They then help you set realistic weight and wellness goals before developing your personalized weight loss program.
